    Hi there

    A week ago, I sold my old Macbook Air. I saved all my data in a Time Machine backup on an external drive and migrated it an hour ago onto my new rMBP. It worked flawlessly and I'm very pleased, however, now my new rMBP has the same name as my old MBA: Julias Macbook Air.

    It doesn't cause any harm, but it's not quite right either since this new computer isn't an Air. How can I rename my new rMBP "Julias Macbook Pro?" Right-click onto the Macbook Icon in the Finder doesn't show a "Rename" option, alas.

    Go to System Preferences > Sharing. Change the name in the text box on the top. Presto, solved!

    Perfect, thanks so much! Would have never occurred to me to look for it in "Sharing" :D
